First, you need a team of three.

On May 15, Jeopardy! posted application instructions to their official Instagram account. “It’s giving ... your time to shine ✨," read the caption. "Grab two friends and take the #PopCultureJeopardy! Anytime Test with the link in bio."

The casting team instructed interested applicants to grab two of their besties with a “diverse range of pop culture knowledge.”

For example, one might dominate in Harry Potter, another might know celebs like the back of their hand, and a third might geek out on Marvel.

The new game show gave fans some idea of the type of questions to expect on their website.

“Contestants, playing in teams of three, will need to be experts in categories from Alternative Rock to The Avengers; Broadway to MMA; Gen Z to Zendaya as they compete in a tournament-style event for the grand prize and ultimate bragging rights,” the text read.

Once the dream team has assembled, applicants must go to the Jeopardy! website and individually take the Anytime Test. This is a 15-minute quiz that tests applicants’ knowledge of all things pop culture. The full rules on how to take the test are found here.

The applications are open now and — get this — Canadians can apply, too! You just have to be over 18.

On Instagram, some users warned others of a technical difficulty that may make applying difficult.
